(R.I.P.) Thread (devoted to Foci that have left us)

Hey guys,

Just something i would like to try out.

A thread for "Wrecked" Foci

I have been seeing more and more threads about some crashes that have happened. Lets put all of out unfortunate accidents in one place.

Add a little/brief story about how it happened. :/

All go first:

2004 ZTS 2.3l PZEV Rolled
I was going around a blind corner which looked like it might go directly straight but instead went in a different direction. Only rolled once after hitting a curb. Its not all that bad of an accident but everything is all good!

On to the pics!

Yes :/ most depressing but we can be strengthened to move on!!!

Yes totaled. When the front pillars were crushed it was deemed Totaled.
It may have been rebuilt but i believe the engine was stripped out and sold.
Three weeks after the accident the 2.3L PZEV was on CL from the same
Salvage yard that the car was at...

Looking at those photos makes me so incredibly grateful that my car only rolled onto its side and then went back onto its wheels, rather than a full rollover. Lady Luck was with me that day! I'm pretty sure it would've been totaled otherwise.

Sorry for the loss. Especially bad since it was a 2.3. Glad you're okay though. When did it happen?

This might be a stupid questions, but how did your air bags not go off?
This is going to be a great thread! Especially to know how many people have wrecked a focus and how the car has saved their lives.

Airbags, drive and passenger, only go off with front and rear end collisions. The front and rear weren't hit.

Side curtain air bags weren't an option for my car that year i don't believe.
